After the big fire in 2004 the library the restauration lasted until 2015 with an impressive result and worthwhile the millions of hours and euros spent on it. It is truly UNESCO World heritage. Do not miss it!

This was the first place I visited after I had bought the Weimar card - only to find out that the card was not accepted there and I had to pay 8 euros. For one room (+ 2 small exhibition rooms), that is quite a...More
